UK Pro-Cuts Activists Lost Motivation

Around 350 people showed up at the protest as the motives behind the protest had gone away. This comes while six weeks ago there were half a million protestors on streets, requiring a huge police presence.

The TaxPayers' Alliance helped organising the Central London Rally Against Debt. Among the protestors were members of the Conservative and Ukip parties, who have called for the Government to stop bailing out other EU countries.

"…some areas aren't being cut at all while spending is rising elsewhere, with contributions to the EU, and international development spending," Matthew Sinclair, director of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said.

The protestors were holding placards that read “Drowning in debt”, “No more bailouts” and “Stop spending money you don't have.”

“We won't put up with this. We are the selfless movement. We're not asking for money, we're asking for cuts to make sure our children and grandchildren don't have to foot the bill,” Mark Littlewood, director general of the Institute of Economic Affairs, said on Saturday.

Britain has recently been facing massive protests against its international and domestic policies. This is while British people mostly oppose the country's engagement in wars and the financial deficit.

"People with disabilities, illness, the unemployed, single parents, carers, the low waged, part-time students, volunteers, homeless people and college students are all likely to see a devastating drop in disposable income with many slipping even further below the poverty line," said a spokesperson of an anti-cuts campaign in early April.

However, it was warned that the police force might join anti-cuts demonstrations.
